Western University of Health Sciences’ Gala Fundraiser Emphasizes Humanism and Caring
Date:11/12/2013

ce and register bone marrow donors. The visionary Life-Savers Foundation of America formed synergistic relationships with huge agencies, institutions and non-governmental organizations, including the American Red Cross, National Institutes of Health, Roche Lab and many others, in order to maximize the impact of the movement. Through Dr. Brutoco’s leadership of the Foundation, as well as leadership within the fledgling National Marrow Donor Program, the ranks of the donor pool rose exponentially in support of the new life-saving technique of bone marrow transplantation.

Dr. Brutoco asked his wife and their four children to stand during the Tribute event, serving as a tangible result of humanism at work in this world.

“They never felt forsaken or their hope extinguished. Their lives were not turned into tragedies, all because a stranger cared,” Brutoco said. “It is a great example of the generosity of spirit we see in people every day.”

At the time, his plan to ask for the public’s help was met with nearly uniform cynicism among the medical and political establishment, Brutoco said. Who would go out of their way to help a stranger?

“Well, it turned out all we had to do was ask. We said rather simply to everyone in this country, ‘There is a cure for cancer. It’s you,’ ” Brutoco said. “Millions of people are standing by, ready to save the life of someone they never met. Humanism, you see, rejects cynicism.”

Humanism is about acknowledging the intrinsic goodness, and the intrinsic godliness, in each and every person, Brutoco said.

“It is embracing that which unites us as human beings, and it is sharing the road with other travelers in this often arduous yet wondrous journey that is life,” he said. “As Elie Wiesel made clear in his writings about the horrors of the Holocaust, even in the most desperate of situations, there is always a potential abundance of kindness and goodness to share. That is the miracle of humanism -- t
